One afternoon I was watching Worst Cooks in America Celebrity Edition. The celebrities were asked to name their signature dish. One gal said she was from the mid-west, a real meat and potatoes part of the country, and hers was a Tater Tot Casserole. Tater what? Sounded crazy to me. But then, I’ve never understood tater tots in the first place. When I mentioned this to Hubby, he said that sounded about right. I filed the idea away and forgot all about the idea. That is until a few night ago. For whatever reason, I thought what the heck. My guys like ground beef. My guys like tater tots.
Tater Tot Casserole
1/2 Cup Chopped Onion
1 pound ground beef
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3 cups frozen fried potato nuggets
Heat oven to 425 degrees.
Chop onions into bite-size pieced. Set aside.
Crumble beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat.Cook the beef until nicely browned, breaking up any chunks as it cooks. Drain off excess grease.
Add onions to beef and continue to cook about 5 minutes or until onions are tender and translucent.
Stir the soup, ketchup and Worcestershire in the skillet. Continue to cook until heated through.
Spoon the beef mixture into a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Arrange the potatoes around the inside edge of the baking dish.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown.
Serve with a nice salad and enjoy.
